Tia Maria Coffee Recipe

Tia Maria Coffee

Tia Maria is an ideal alcohol addition to a typical coffee and this recipe makes sure to combine the best of both Tia Maria and your favourite coffee ground to create a deliciously sweet and thick coffee experience. Tia Maria coffee makes for a brilliant dessert drink or a sneaky mid-weekend pick-me-up.

As a dark liqueur typically made using Jamaican coffee beans, Tia Maria is a natural choice to add to a mug of well-brewed coffee as the flavours are organically similar and so will sit alongside one another beautifully.

The added rum, vanilla, sugar and other spices in Tia Maria give it a delightful kick that adds a bit of spice to your average mug of coffee.

Used in cocktails worldwide, Tia Maria is a great addition to your coffee because it works so well as an after-dinner drink, or served as a stand-alone mug. The amount of variety you can add to this Tia Maria coffee recipe is limitless, allowing you to perfect your dream Tia Maria coffee.

Coffee-Direct’s Tia Maria flavoured blend combines the sweet, fragrant flavours of the Jamaican liqueur with a smooth, mild coffee, allowing you to make a delicious mug of Tia Maria coffee without the excess ingredients or the added time.

This flavoured coffee allows you to make a well-adored drink in minutes and still keep the original delicious flavours.
